Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder revealed

After endless whispers about its existence, Lamborghini has finally revealed the Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Basically a roofless version of Lamborghini’s mid-engined masterpiece, the LP550-2 Valentino Balboni model, the Spyder is powered by the same 5.2 L V10 engine, delivering 405 kW (550 hp) to the rear wheels via the company’s e-gear paddle-shift transmission.

Those figures, combined with a weight of just 1,520 kg, result in a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of just 4.2 seconds, while top speed is a pleasurable 319km/h (198 mph).

Lamborghini has tweaked the aerodynamics and chassis of the Spyder, particularly the damper settings, in order to optimize the handling characteristics of a car that had initially been designed to be all-wheel drive.
